Community College of Baltimore County Performing Arts presents Small Mouth Sounds by Bess Wohl Oct. 13 – 17. All performances will be held at the Robert and Eleanor Romadka College Center, F. Scott Black Theatre at CCBC Essex, 7201 Rossville Boulevard.

In the overwhelming quiet of the woods, six runaways from city life embark on a silent retreat. As these strangers confront internal demons both profound and absurd, their vows of silence collide with the achingly human need to connect. Filled with awkward humor, this strange and compassionate new play asks how we address life’s biggest questions when words fail us.

Performance times include:
• 11:10 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 13
• 7 p.m. Friday & Saturday, Oct. 14 & 15
• 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 16 (American Sign Language interpreted)
• 10 a.m. Monday, Oct. 17

CCBC’s production of Small Mouth Sounds is directed by guest artist Brandon Rashad Butts, with scenic and lighting design by Terri Raulie and costumes by Eva Grove. The stage manager is Andrew Pfluger. [Please note, Small Mouth Sounds contains mature content, including discussions of addiction and self-harm.]
